Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at University of Central Lancashire

Ceramics MA


Matthew Helbert - August 2018

Rather poor. In Design there were plenty of pseudo academic activities, for example going to mandatory lectures and writing two essays. Most people found these unhelpful. There were also poster to do in second year, although I think regular group crits would have been much more useful. In year 2 there was little practical teaching. Health and safety was pretty much ignored in the studio. Languages seemed much more orgainsed. read full review
Really good. The only negative that I can think of is that being part time evening student, many of the opportunities such as mootin competitions, careers fairs etc do happen 9-5 mon-fri and so I cannot take advantage of them without taking leave from work. read full review
I find my university a supportive and encouraging environment. The learning has all been positive and I look forward to completing my MA here. I'm pleased to have chosen UCLAN. read full review
Overall experience is good, however can't judge yet as I am only in the 1st semester of the course.

The quality of the teaching material is poor (would welcome some real world examples, live lecture/sessions should be available for distance learners). read full review
So far it has met all my expectations andnis most enjoyable. The facilities are exactly what we need as a university we have have 24 hour on site access to the library and all it’s facilities read full review
I have recieved alot of support, both academic and wellbeing and opportunities through the univeristy. The university has helped me grow as a person, i have been able to learn languages, travel and volunteer and also gain an undergraduate degree. The course I am studying now is funded by the university so they are constantly giving me opportunities to reach my full potential read full review

From getting involved myself I’ve had a very interesting time and experienced a wealth of activities. Sometimes teaching can be improved but overall there are good opportunities across the board read full review
Ok - nothing exceptional but it gets the job done and helps me progress my career. The course material is perfect for what I require however the tutors could do more to help and support students. read full review
